Olney/Sandy Spring To Be Featured in Upcoming Episode of ‘If You Lived Here’

WETA’s house-hunting series, If You Lived Here, spotlights a wide array of neighborhoods and properties throughout the national capital area while celebrating each area’s history, culture, notable places and flavor. On Monday, January 30th, the show will explore Olney/Sandy Spring. The area is described as a “neighborhood in Maryland that lies between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.” Guided by realtor Karen Rollings, they tour three homes: first, a starter home built in 1973 located in the Olney Mill neighborhood; next, a modern twist on the exact same starter home to show possibilities through renovation; and lastly, a family home that is situated next to farmland.

In the episode you’ll be able to hear from local historians who discuss the area’s fascinating roots — from the first European and Quaker settlers and their roles in manumission to the stories of the former enslaved at the Slave Museum and the descendants who continue to live in the area today. Along the way, they will explore Sandy Spring Adventure Park, the country’s largest outdoor climbing park located on Sandy Spring Friends School’s campus. You can watch If You Lived Here featuring Sandy Spring/Olney, MD on Monday, Jan. 30 at 9pm on WETA PBS (Channel 26 in the DMV) and 8pm on WETA Metro, or stream with the free PBS app.
